    HELP no sound in windows 8, now not even booting.

    Hi i have the following

    BioStar Hi-Fi A85W Socket FM2 Motherboard - ATX, Socket FM2, AMD A85, DDR3 2400 MHz (O.C), SATA III (6Gb/s), RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, PCIe 2.0, CrossFireX Ready

    AMD A8-Series AD560KWOHJBOX Quad-Core A8-5600K Black Edition APU - 4MB L2 Cache, 3.6GHz, Socket FM2, Radeon HD 7560D (256 Cores), Dual Graphics Ready, DirectX 11, Fan, Unlocked, Retail

    Kingston HyperX Red KHX16C9B1R/4 4GB Memory Module - 1600MHz, 9-9-9, DDR3, CL9, 1.65V, Unbuffered

    Toshiba HDKPC03 DT01ACA100 1TB Hard Drive - 1TB, 7200 RPM, SATA, 3.5"

    Window 8 64 bit.

    I recently put this computer together as a cheap media machine. Everything worked. It connected via onboard NIC to the internet, it had sound. No problems.

    Then I upgraded by adding another stick of RAM. Same module 4gb. and all hell breaks loose.

    I lost lost and internet. Media sound service couldn't start. Said something along the lines that found new hardward. And it wasn't communicating with my NIC card anymore.. I tried updated the drivers. No joy.

    I contacted Biostar and asked for an issue. They recommend me to update drives and then reset bios setting to factory defaults. I tried that. No joy.

    I then RMA's the vendor and got another mobo. Installed it and it had the same issue. No sound no internet.

    Last nite I decided maybe I should just reinstall windows, but now my computer freezes on the bios screen.

    I used to have a full head of hair. Please help.

    Thx, Tikki.

    This is no longer a "Sound" problem. Its a hardware/installation problem.

    My recommendation is to repost on the appropriate forum section. Installation & Setup - Windows 8 Forums

    Remove the extra added memory stick and see if issue still remains. If not, then you know you have a faulty RAM stick. Have you seen or experienced any BSOD's?

    You can rem Memtest86+ to test your memory.
